-->'''Jubair:''' You turn to them for answers and salvation. You rely more upon them than yourselves. This makes you weak and stupid. You trust in words, drops of ink. Do you ever stop to think of who put them there? Or why? No, you simply accept their words without question, and what if those words speak falsely, as they often do?
-->'''Jubair:''' Is it not ancient scrolls that inspire the Crusaders? That fill Salāḥ ad-Dīn and his men with a sense of righteous fury? Their texts endanger others, bring death in their wake. I too, was making a small sacrifice.

* ConspicuousPublicAssassination: Altaïr tries one of these at the start and ends up looking the fool for being brazen and unsubtle. It's what prompts the BagOfSpilling (Al Mualim, frustrated that Altaïr acted so irrationally, strips him of his rank and weapons and forces him to prove himself worthy to earn them back). You can also do this to assassination targets if you want, foregoing the whole stealth thing and just running them down in plain view of everyone. Later in life he laments this style of assassination and says the Order needs to practice subtlety and discretion in how their jobs are carried out.

* BatmanGambit: He pulled two of these. Expecting Altaïr to try to kill him, he made [[spoiler:Majd Addin's funeral into a trap, placed the best soldiers and a female decoy dressed as him, and hoped they would distract and kill Altaïr while he himself would be at Arsuf, trying to form an alliance of the Crusaders and Saracens against the Assassins by using Altaïr's successes to convince the leaders of both factions]]. This gets goofed up, unfortunately, when Altaïr [[spoiler:approaches the king directly at Arsuf and reveals why Robert is actually brokering the truce between the Crusaders and Saracens, which results in the king siding with Altaïr and demanding that he and Robert fight it out to decide who holds the truth]].

* YouDontLookLikeYou: Al Mualim appears in ''Altaïr's Chronicles'', but you'd be forgiven for not recognizing him. With a completely different outfit, face, and even a short, black beard to contrast his regular elderly appearance, you'd only ever know that's actually Al Mualim because the game and characters directly refer to him as such.

*AmazonChaser: He meets his future wife in a trap she sprung to personally kill him. They fight again at the start of ''Bloodlines'' and she is a DefiantCaptive the whole time as well as escaping him more than once. By the end they are fighting together. Yes, Maria made quite the impression on him, considering he married her after all that.



*GodzillaThreshold: In ''Bloodlines'', [[spoiler: he carries the Apple of Eden with him the entire time but he only uses it once, when a Templar mole rallied an angry mob of civilians against him within a fortress. If he has to choose between killing a bunch innocents, and thus breaking the Creed, or using the Apple then he's going to use the Apple.]]



* HappilyMarried: To Maria.

to:

* HappilyMarried: To Maria.Definitely to Maria and implicitly happy given their dialogue when both are old and grey.



* HeroicWillpower: Of a CharlesAtlasSuperpower variety. Thanks to his training and the time he's spent with Al Mualim and [[spoiler:his descent from Those Who Came Before]], he's immune to the hypnotic effects of the Apple. Or at least less susceptible than the other Assassins.
* HiddenDepths: Despite all his stabby-stab tendencies, he was quite the capable artist, as seen in his codex entries. He even drew a portrait of Maria, framed by flowers, in one of his Codex pages. Awww.

**He shows interest in things that have nothing to do with assassinating like the work of the Greek Philosopher Empedocles.



** At first. He acted high and mighty and believed himself superior to others. He wised up during his journey when he witnessed what happens to those who let themselves be consumed by arrogance. It's also possible to play him as a JerkWithAHeartOfGold in that you can save every single citizen in a district before ever even going to the Assassin Bureau.

* KnightInSourArmor: The Codex entries revealed that he's a strong believer in that HumansAreFlawed (in the "[[HumansAreBastards bastards]]" way) and that GodIsEvil, and that he maybe should have let the Templars use the Piece of Eden to put an end to all evil, yet he fights on to make the world a better place for the common man.

** In the first minutes of the game, which his act of overconfident jerkassery cost Malik his arm and his brother's life, and then lead the Templars to Masyaf. Then later, near the end of the game, his successes gave [[spoiler:Robert de Sable the means to unite the Crusaders and the Saracens against the Assassins. And by killing his Templar targets, he gave Al Mualim the chance to take power. Altaïr quickly put a stop to this, however]].
